    What would you do?

    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.
    The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision.
    Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.


    *** THE SITUATION: ***
    You are in London. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions.
    You are a photo-journalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.
    The situation is nearly hopeless.
    You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing into the water.
    Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


    ** THE TEST: ***
    Suddenly, you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris You move closer...
    Somehow, the man looks familiar....
    You suddenly realize who it is.... It's the Muslim Cleric, Abu Hamza, the one-eyed, hook handed guy who hates non-Muslims and wants the UK to become an Islamic state!!

    You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.
    You have two options:

    You can save the life of Abu or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's most despised, evil and powerful men!


    *** NOW THE QUESTION: ***
    Here's the question, and please give an honest answer...

    Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

    High contrast colour.


    And I'd also shout "OI, HAMSTER! SAY CHEESE!"

    Because, and I can't stress this enough, I don't give a [censored].

    Not really, I have a Canon 40D I use for most of my photography, film is a different medium with different results - no point in limiting yourself!

    I'd throw a high voltage power line for him to grab.

    Ilford B&W, undoubtedly. Nothing says photojournalism like monochrome.

    Plus it saves the papers the arduous task of desaturating any blood stains in the photos for fear of offending people with a little blood in the photo of a dying man.
